Gunman confronts Occupiers on New Haven Green
WFSB ^

Posted on 12/31/2011 9:19:29 AM PST by matt04

New Haven and Yale University Police captured a man they said confronted members of Occupy New Haven and pulled a gun on one of them.

Around 1:13 a.m. Friday, New Haven Police said they responded to reports that a group of black men were kicking the Occupier's tents as they walked through the encampment.

Justin Sabatino, one of the protesters, said he told police that the group was walking through the encampment kicking the tents yelling, "wake up."

Sabatino said he confronted the men when one of them pulled out a gun and pointed it at him. Another protester, identified as Henry Rodriguez, said he heard the commotion and when he left his tent to see what was happening, he said he saw the man pointing the gun at Sabatino.

...

New Haven and Yale University Police officers secured the area and began to search for the men.

Police said Walden was seen running back to Broadway. An officer radioed the information and officers from the Yale Police Department spotted him and after a brief struggle was arrested.

Police said he kept trying to reach for his waistband during the struggle.

After being arrested, police said they found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in his waistband and he also had a pair of black baseball gloves and a black ski mask in his possession.

How fitting that one feral population encounters another. I’m sure the gunman will be out & about before the occupy moonbats break camp.

New Haven is a cesspool.

I’m reading the comments and thinking these should be flagged but they have more “like” than abuse next to them. Crazy people.

Sabatino said he pissed himself and ran like hell when one of them confronted him and pulled out a gun.

There, that's more likely what happened.

Why hasn't Yale been able to straighten out New Haven?

I would think that Yale should be the nexus of Hope and Change.

Say, the alleged gunman doesn’t look very Tea-Partyish . . .

Ha ha....Good point !! These pointy headed liberal academics are quick to lecture the rest of us how to live but can’t seem to clean up their own nests. Same thing here in Philly with Penn and Temple. The best they can do is buy the slums and knock them down!!

If Occupy New Haven had any cojones, they'd skip the Green and occupy Yale itself.

Google Earth reveals that the campus is right next to the Green.

The OWS isn’t looking too multicultural with this racist disenfranchisement of the downtrodden. They were obviously members of O’s civilian militia sent to protect them against Tea Party terrorists. \s

More Diversity On The Rampage!

The yoots were just showing their disapproval of Whitey McCracker-Honkey’s racism with the Occupy movement which is trying to keep the Black man down.

Ya feel me, bro?

I have a great idea! Let’s force affirmative action down the throats of Obama’s Occupado thugs!

New Haven, Bridgeport and Hartford are all cesspools. Willimantic is the toilet. The thing is all of those places are run by the Dems. In Waterbury, where Republicans win mostly and Danbury you can see how those cities are. Hartford is not as bad as Bridgeport or New Haven, but you can see the difference.

I swear. Neither myself nor anyone in my family is involved.

Not at all surprised it happened. New Haven needs another 3 homicides to top its old record and time is running out.

I guess this thug wanted to die fighting. Most thugs don’t survive pulling a gun on an inner city cop.
